Series - Sown: Scattered
Duration: 30 mins 50 sec

'That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.” Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. ' Matthew 13:1-9
